SchoolArts: The Art Education Magazine for Teachers, v110 n3 p20-21 Nov 2010
Bento boxes are common objects in Japanese culture, designed to hold enough lunch for one person. They have individual compartments and sometimes multiple tiers for rice, vegetables, and other side dishes. They are made of materials ranging from wood, cloth, aluminum, or plastic. In general, the greater the number of foods, the better the box is considered to be. Through this lesson, students will understand how bento boxes are used in Japan and will compare the differences and similarities between Japanese and American lunches. They will learn about the different kinds of food that are stored in bento boxes and create imaginative and humorous bento boxes, adding their own favorite foods. (Contains 1 online resource.)
